Days after Sewol Tragedy

THE CATASTROPHE

When I woke up today, my husband was watching the news about the sinking of a ferry in South Korea, a tragedy that has brought sorrow all over the nation. It has been four days since the 6,825-ton vessel, Sewol, capsized off Korea’s southwest coast, but rescuers are yet to find hundreds of passengers still unaccounted for, and more and more families receive devastating news as names of victims confirmed dead are announced each day.

North Korea Strikes Again; South Korea Fires Back

Last night, my husband and I were talking about what might happen to us if war breaks out between South Korea and North Korea. What sparked such conversation was theexchange of fire between the two Koreas on Monday, March 31, after several artillery shells launched by the North as part of its live-fire drills near the Western Sea Border landed in the South’s territorial waters. There were no casualties (thank God), but residents of nearby islands Baengnyong and Genpink were evacuated to temporary shelters.

Video Every Day in February: Success!

We did it!

We decided back in January that, during the month of February, we would try to upload a video to Youtube every day! Well, February is over now, and we did it! We managed to upload 28 videos in 28 days. Many of those videos were a new series we’ve started called KLVOGS – Korea VLOGS! These videos are supposed to just be casual snapshots of our lives here in South Korea. We really enjoy making them, and the response to them has been fantastic! Thanks!
